Acer's insanely cheap Windows 10 Cloudbooks take aim at Chromebooks

Ian Paul | Aug. 5, 2015
Acer isn't wasting any time with rolling out its low-priced Windows 10 notebooks.

Should you buy it?

Typically, Windows laptops that ship with underpowered specs like the Aspire One Cloudbooks are a bad choice. However, our crazy experiments show that Windows 10 will run on all kinds of poorly powered hardware. If we can get a reasonable Windows 10 experience from a 7 year-old Vista machine, these Cloudbooks will probably be just fine at running Office 2013, browsing the Web, and streaming music and video.

That's more or less what you'd expect from a Chromebook--minus Office--which is what the Cloudbooks are meant to match.
